Mauricio Mendiola's 2003 crime drama purports to have something important to say about the cruelty and violence that grips his native Colombia as a result of the cocaine trade, but the characters are so grotesquely overdrawn that it plays like a violent comedy. With the exception of the heroine, a young woman on a cross-country bus trip to visit a childhood friend, every character is morally repugnant, though only the principal heavy, a coke-snorting guerrilla who turns against his Che Guevara-like leader, goes far enough over the top to be interesting. In Spanish with subtitles. 85 min.
